The Anticipated De-scheduling of Cannabis to Drive Growth in Germany's Medical Cannabis Market

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), a prominent global medical cannabis company based in Canada, commends the German government's recent approval of cannabis legalization, marking a significant advancement in improving patient access to medical cannabis with the formal enactment of the Cannabis Act.

The Germany Reform

This reform represents a much-needed shift towards a more accessible medical cannabis market and a renewed commitment to patient care. Following in the footsteps of progressive nations like Canada, Germany's move sets a standard for global expansion.

Dirk Heitepriem, Vice President of External Affairs at Aurora Europe, GmbH, expressed, "Germany's reform represents a major step forward in patient access to medical cannabis and a more liberal approach to cannabis, which we have long advocated for. With cannabis de-scheduling, more patients will have access to treatment, reinforcing our commitment to patient outreach and ensuring comprehensive access to high-quality medical cannabis. Today's enhanced access reaffirms our dedication to driving progressive change."

In addition to the cultural significance of Germany's strides in cannabis legalization, these developments present a unique opportunity for Aurora, a leading supplier of medical cannabis in Germany, to further expand its presence in the country.
